Working as a counselor to teenagers, my appreciation of faith and my Catholic education has grown over the years. My mother’s spiritual influence combined with an Our Mother of Sorrows curriculum had a tremendous impact.
Recently, I started a gratitude journal. Each day I make 5 entries. It is an easy way for a Catholic, or anyone who believes, to stop and think about what is truly important. As I try to inspire and help young people, my memories of Catholic education and daily gratitude boost my effort.
